Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
Half of my instrument panel will not light up in my 2001 Corolla. Could it be a fuse? If not, how do I get to the bulb?
I had the same problem in my 2001 Corolla. Removing the cluster was not a problem. Remove the two screws securing the 'bezel' around the cluster. You may need to use a small screwdriver then to gently pry the bezel out from the top and remove. Then remove three screws securing the instrument cluster and pull it out. Because newer cars have all electronic guages, there is no speedometer cable to make it difficult. Just pull it out, turn it over and twist the green bulb holders to get to the bulbs.

I had the same problem on my car. Someone quoted $750.00 what cost me less than $6.00 to repair! Bought some standard 154 or 164 long life bulbs at AutoZone. Taking the instrument panel apart was easy but needed to be careful...used a flat head screwdriver to gently pry the dash apart.
BIG POINT - the reason these bulbs burned out was because of a loose connection, so when putting in the new bulbs, bend the metal holders in slightly.
